    Grease's Note:

    I have made this meal without the asparagus but when it is back in season again, I really enjoy the texture and fresh flavor it brings to the recipe.

    The Chicken

    The Cooking Sauce

    Stir-Fry Ingredients


    1. 1
      In a bowl, stir together the first three ingredients and add chicken; coat well and set aside.
    2. 2
      In another small bowl, mix the cooking sauce ingredients and set aside.
    3. 3
      Place a wok over medium-high heat; when wok is hot, add 2 tablespoons of the oil. When oil is hot, add the cashews and stir until browned (about 1 minute). Remove with a slotted spoon and set aside.
    4. 4
      Add the chicken mixture and stir-fry until meat is no longer pink in the center (about 3 minutes). Remove from wok and set aside.
    5. 5
      Pour the remaining tablespoon oil into the wok. When the oil is hot, add the bell peppers, onion, asparagus and ginger; stir-fry until the pepper is crisp-tender to the bite (about 4 minutes).
    6. 6
      Return the chicken to the wok. Stir cooking sauce to blend and add to wok; stir until bubbly and sauce has thickened. Stir in the cashews and immediately serve over the rice.

      I liked this a lot but did have to make some adjustments. I used two chicken breasts (they must make them larger in 2012 than in 2005, because there was plenty for 4 servings). I used double the soy sauce and garlic for the chicken; used broccoli instead of asparagus and a red pepper for one of the green peppers. I doubled the cornstarch and added almost an extra cup of water for the sauce. I did not bother to brown the cashews. Next time I will add more hot sauce, ginger and other spices - it was a little bland. I sprinkled some extra chopped garlic before serving. made for PAC Fall 2012
